I think I'm finally starting to really get these down. I've learned two types of koshinage so far. The first is like a kokyu nage with the hips in the way. The second is more like wraping uke around you, thrusting your hips under his belt, and then unwrapping him onto the floor.
I've been doing pretty well with the second type, but was having trouble with the first type. Last night I felt like I was getting it; meaning, of course, that I could perform the same throw with both sides of my body, with a couple of different ukes, in a row.
Class last night went well in other ways too. We had a good turnout of students with two newcomers.
